Of course we do still have the not-quite-so-realistic real-time aspect too. My favourite from the first episode is our boy Jack, after 20 months without ever having seen soap, scissors or a Gilette Sensor, taking off his shirt to start getting cleaned up at 6:13 am... only to be freshly coiffed, professionally groomed and having travelled to the drop-off point at 6:28 am.

He really does do more in 15 minutes than many of us do in a day!! :D

Also thought wasn't the best season opener. Wasn't as dramatic as last year with all the kill-offs in the 1st show. But then...there wouldn't be anyone left...

Funny also how 20 months later, Jack was pretty up-to-date on new cell phone features that permit entering Lat-Long info to get address through cell provider (which was followed by a cell phone provider ad for the exact same service....in HD!) Nice product placement!

Glad football pre-empted the Global feed, got to watch the Boston feed with a lot of commercials in HD.

I think we should have a NO SPOILER rule here -- as is the case with forums like AVSforum.com. Some of the posts here were pretty close to being spoilers. Stuff like "Hour 4 is jaw dropping, major shockers" ..... mmmm?

If you want plot updates, go to www.wikipedia.org and lookup 24.

Expressvu didn't simulcast...well, they did, for the first segment, but switched back to FOX when they realized it wasn't a CTV show they were simulcasting. How much you wanna bet CTV butchers IDOL and gets away with it every week?

Preview was ok...fairly typical. 18 hours of filler coming up and then the last few remaining hours are usually the most interesting. This is where people like me, PVR about 4-6 weeks worth and just watch 'em all in one sitting.

Does Rogers simulcast everything? CTV/Citytv/Global?

Rogers subbed the HD feed, but at least it was in HD.

Next Monday at 10 HDGLB says "24 (HD)". Likely not. I'll watch it an hour earlier on Fox with no sub. Who needs Global HD.

After watching two seasons of Sleeper Cell, I find 24 a little too Hollywood. Maybe this has to do with the fact I have only started watching 24 last year(season 5).

Just watched hours 3&4 (pvr'd from FOXHW, Evu to avoid the Global butchering of the feed). Definately made up for the lacklustre hours 1 and 2!

Almost had a coronary when Heroes(Global feed) was playing instead of 24 on Fox. Took almost 2 minutes before the Boston feed finally came up...

I have a new theory about 24 on Global's HD at 10:00. It's delayed from Fox's original timeslot, so why Global can do HD in this case? I would like to think that Global's got new gear that will allow them to finally do it. But another possibility is that they're just picking up Fox's central time zone HD feed. Which is it, I don't know. Have to watch a couple more weeks to figure it out.

Fox & Global simsub on Feb.12

Heads Up....

Monday's (Feb. 12) 2 hour episode (or two 1 hour episodes) air from 8PM to 10PM ET on both Global AND Fox according to my IPG. I'm sure you can kiss the "true" HD signal goodbye for the upcoming week.:(
